NEXT PROGRAMTuesday, January 12, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the College Park Aviation Museum

"Butterflies: Nature’s Festival of Colors"

presented by C. “Sparky” Sparks

While we're covered in snow, let's think about bright beautiful butterflies!

Each summer, volunteers across North America fan out to count butterflies to promote interest in butterflies and provide results for the scientific monitoring of butterflies within North America.  The North American Butterfly Association (NABA) count program has been held annually since 1975 with more counts occuring every year.  Much like Christmas Bird Counts, volunteers conduct a one-day census, counting every butterfly they observe within their count circle.  The West Anne Arundel County Count is centered in Odenton and encompasses habitats on the Patuxent Research Refuge North Tract.  Mr. Sparks will present the results of 15 years of West Anne Arundel County counts.

Welcome to the home page of the Prince George's Audubon Society (PGAS), a local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Audubon members in the northern part of Prince George's County, Maryland.  PGAS was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization with officers and a board of directors, all volunteers, elected by the general membership.  Membership in PGAS is obtained through the National Audubon Society.  PGAS members receive our chaper newsletter, The Bluebird, and are encouraged to actively participate in chapter activities including a monthly speaker series, field trips, annual bird counts, and other special events. 

This website is for members of PGAS to keep up to date on program and field trip schedules and other chapter activities.  In addition, this website serves as a resource for non-members to find out more about Audubon and PGAS and to explore the benefits of membership.  Non-members are welcome to participate in our meetings and field trips and are free to take advantage of the local birding and environmental information on this website as well as the links to a wide range of related information available on the internet.  Of course, if you live in northern Prince George's County we would love to have you as a PGAS member, and membership information is always available.
